Which is better: MP4 vs SWF

So, I'd heard on these forums a few times that some of my customers might encounter problems playing mp4 files if their systems didn't have the right codec or player or something.

I know Articulate supports mp4, and Screenr creates mp4 files to anyone who wants one...let me pose this question. Should I anticipate any problems if I offer mp4 files to my customers both 1) standalone and 2) embedded in an Articulate course?

Does anyone know if there are circumstances where an mp4 or flv file embedded as a flash object within Presenter would, open publish and subsequent launch, play back those files in an external application like movie maker instead of the same browser window that the module itself is running in?
